The forums are for discussion.  For anything where it's about getting response and discourse, then you want to post in the forum.

The blogs are for opinion and entertainment pieces.  If it's just about showing off a piece of writing or expression your side of an issue, you want to write a blog.

The reviews are for game impressions with a score.  If you've played a game and want to tell people what you think about it write a review.

It's out of hand at this point.  We've had numerous lists posted to the forum with no impetus for discussion, and it hasn't slowed down.

I will move lock any new forum topics that are blatantly blog posts to your blog.

I agree it has gotten way out of hand.

You can already transfer Foolz and Vader's forum threads in blog form. On GS they actually made blogs of of the very same threads yet here they put it in the forums. 

Screw warnings just transfer it now, people learn faster by example.

"I will move any new forum topics that are blatantly blog posts to your blog."

It's in bold! How terrifying.

This thread doesn't seem open to discussion. Better move it to your blog.

It is easier to have a discussion on the forums than on the tiny blog comment boxes.

Really yoda? You wanna go down that road?  Do you actually believe people around here are new to internet message boards? That they don't know the difference between blog/board/review?

But more importantly, will you risk alienating a part of an already scarce userbase because in order to adress a minor issue you chose to admonish them severely from the heights of a golden papal throne?

I've given this well over a month, and no, apparently the people here don't know the difference.

Had the first person to post his "games of the decade" thread, thought to, instead of indulging himself with "Here's MY list" instead posted "Post your top games of the decade" then included his, perhaps we wouldn't have had everyone thinking his own list is its own topic.

But it manages not to stop of these stupid lists, now we're just getting blog posts, with the words "this blog post" in the damn post itself as a topic, along with other lists.

Aside from that,

You're way out of line with that.  Yeah, locking a topic and telling them to put in in their blog -- really severe right there.  Maybe if I could get a serious response when I try to address anything instead of BS suggesting there's no middle-ground between ignoring the site altogether and Hiter's third reich.

Let me reemphasize -- I've been holding off saying anything for over a month.  I'm sorry you think this as some sort of egotistical power-grab.

Perhaps you remember this thread.

No wait, you probably don't, because nobody could be assed to bother a response.  What was there was middling about the podcast.  So beyond this one particular issue, I've been concerned about my seemingly solitary initiative beyond the status-quo, regardless of changing situations.

So you know what?  Fine.  Fuck it.  I'm starting University in a week at a new apartment in a new city, and am stressed to hell and back.  You can deal with this crap yourselves.
